Carob

Carob powder is a great alternative to cocoa powder. It looks exactly the same except that carob is made from dried, roasted carob pods that are ground down to form a powder. There are many ways in which this chocolate-tasting ingredient can be used, however most use it as a natural sweetener in baking. Carob is considered to be a healthier form of chocolate than the likes of cocoa as there is no need to add sugar due to being naturally sweet in flavour. 

Carob Powder Benefits

Carob powder is naturally low in fat, however it has a higher sugar content than cocoa powder. It can actually help you to stay fuller for longer due to its high fibre content - just two tablespoons of carob powder contains 5 grams of fibre, which is 20% of the recommended daily allowance of fibre! Fibre is important to have in your daily diet for your body and gut to function properly. Whether you believe it or not, carob powder is in fact a form of calcium with 2 tablespoons providing you with 42 mg of calcium - add to a mug of hot milk for a nutritious hot chocolate that is rich in calcium!

If you love healthy chocolate alternatives why not buy carob powder and start experimenting with your favourite recipes - simply replace cocoa or cacao with carob in a recipe and reduce the quantity of sugar - easy! We do not currently sell raw carob powder but we do provide the purest form of carob you can buy along with organic options available too.
